It says so on the USGS map. It swells above the landscape @ sundown from out here @ JEM TH parking lot. Today I finally hiked to the top on a trail, not an example of a sustainable trail. Just an observation, most likely a climbers trail that wore in. In the shade a skiff of snow remained just to lessen the traction. View from top was out across miles of desert. Desert landscape.
Bought a pair of Ergon grips made with cork ovecoating . Will put them on soon. I wore Fixie Dave @ the shop asking questions about their performance.
Spent last night and tonight up @ upper JEM TH. Still patches of snow from Sunday in the shade of leafless bushes.
Yesterday I rode Barrelroll trails in beautiful weather, chilly sunshine. Great trail system.
Chris cut my hair @ his barbershop. Guys hanging out waiting their turn talked of cars. I picked up a lone magazine on airplanes and started leafing thru it. The guy sitting beside me asked if I flew, I said No. He then told me of his accumulation of licenses and flying. He took an introductory helicopter flight years ago, cost of $100. They waived his fee because htey knew he would be back. To date license etc have cost him $85,000. I paid $10 for a neaten ‘em up haircut, my beard and hair are shorter far short of a high and tight style.
Forecast is for above freezing temps @ night later in the week which will eliminate the freeze thaw mud. I have been waiting to ride the Hurricane Rim a new IMBA epic ride since I got here. The weather needs to dry up the clay dirt.
